Slim's Pick'ins


Noted photographer, Slim Aarons spent his career posing himself as a fly on the fence panels of Hollywood's cognoscenti. His work is documented in a small but stunning collection of books. From a design slant, Poolside With Slim Aarons is the most satiating. Each image is a parable that illustrates the interplay between social harmony and tricked out landscape architecture. It's pictorial eavesdropping through the Baroque lens of Big Brother.
